Has anyone tried using the rope style soft shackles as axle straps? I’m considering tying my samurai down by the inner Cs on the front axle but a regular axle strap doesn’t fit.

Probably going to depend on what style ratchet strap hook you want to use. The Snap Hooks are probably too sharp/narrow and create a sharp bend radius and/or just cut the soft shackle at some point.

Will just the strap fit thru thr knuckle, maybe something like this would work. Lasso Axle Strap w/ Sleeve

Or I’m working more towards the weld-on tabs that easily accept the snap hooks and skip the axle straps most days.

Can't just go around the tube right next to the C I assume?

I don't see why the soft shackle wouldn't work, as someone else mentioned, just make sure the hook isn't too narrow or sharp.
